Educational Webinar: Challenge Accepted
This was the ninth event in our Webinar Wednesday Series. Throughout this series, we will be hosting a live webinar or virtual hangout every Wednesday evening at 7 PM ET about various topics of interest and importance in our community.
About This Webinar
This webinar was held on Wednesday, May 20 at 7 PM ET. This included a “Challenge Accepted” screening of an original short video featuring Emmy winner and hemophilia advocate Alex Borstein, who shed light on the emotional aspects of being a family in the bleeding disorder community.
Following the video, we had an open discussion about the everyday struggles of living with a bleeding disorder and how laughter plays a crucial role in acceptance.
